Mar. 19, 2020  We are asking all members to REFRAIN FROM USING REUSABLE BAGS at this time.  We will be waiving the 5 cent fee for plastic bags until further notice as this is a more hygienic option for our members and staff.  PHARMACIES can only refill prescriptions a maximum of 5 days before they are due to run out.  To find out more about other prescription protocols during this pandemic please visit saskatchewan.ca and visit their COVID-19 section.  Also, as of today we are putting a LIMIT ON TYLENOL products, 1 per person.  This is to ensure everyone in the community has access to these items.

Cleaning protocols have been increased at all food stores including cart sanitation.

Mar. 16, 2020 — Delivery Service for groceries/prescriptions is now available to members within town limits and we are also offering parking lot pick up to anyone from out of town to utilize.  This service is especially meant to help those who are experiencing symptoms, under quarantine or at high risk of infection.  The less traffic the better so we encourage all to make use of this service.  To arrange deliveries call:
